Ultimate Coming Soon Page
[resolved] HTTP 304 option (4 posts)

    Hi there.
    I'm using coming soon plugin between old/new website transition. I don't want to index the coming soon page, because the old site has some valuable content. I think it should exist an option to add HTTP 403 (not modified) headers to coming soon page, this way search bots will ignore the coming soon page and the previous website will persist on the index.
    Sorry for any typo, I'm in a rush.

    You can't send a message body with 304 headers.
    "The 304 response MUST NOT contain a message-body, and thus is always terminated by the first empty line after the header fields."

    I have another plugin that lets you specify a 503.

    Oh, I see.. 304 is only for people which have a cached version of the page, right?
    So, 503 it is.

    Thanks!

    Oh, I'm using your plugin (actually the designer is) and I was unsure because it was returning HTTP200, but it has the 'maintenance' mode which returns 503, great.
